Insightful Happiness Quotes by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos & Montesquieu

A man enjoys the happiness he feels,
a woman the happiness she gives.
Pierre Choderlos de Laclos,Les liaisons dangereuses

If one only wished to be happy,this could be easily accomplished; but we wish to be happier than other people, and this is always difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are.
Montesquieu,The Persian Letters

What unhappy beings men are! They constantly waver between false hopes and silly fears, and instead of relying on reason they create monsters to frighten themselves with, and phantoms which lead them astray.
Montesquieu,The Persian Letters
